    Do you prefer playing with a crowded table or one that one has a few people? I've seen tables that get totally crazy and to me that would be nerve wrecking.

    As a beginner, I would prefer to play at a table that doesn't have a big crowd. I would like to be able to ask the dealer questions without anyone getting mad that I am taking to long.

    I like the tables that have a nice crowd. There is something about the rush of having all those people cheering for you. Plus, I enjoy talking to some of them. You can get some pretty good advice from the ones standing around the table.

    I'd like to go to a table that isn't like a ghost town, but it isn't crowded like New Orleans at Mardi Gras, you know? Just a nice, decent sized crowd is fine for me.

    You don't need to concentrate too much in craps so a mildly crowded tables would be fine in my opinion.

    Well, concentrating is exactly what you should be doing when gambling with your money, however as a beginner you should walk up to a fairly empty table. It will more than likely be a slower paced game and less action. This will allow you to feel comfortable. Once you are comfortable and have your strategy set and you play the same way and know exactly what your next move will be on every roll, then i would find a table that has a decent amount of people. It really is preference. Only time will tell what you like. Their are benefits to both. Good Luck

    i definately don't like to go where there are only one or two people. I need more help at trying to carry the ball for a big roll. I do like a little elbow room and not so crowded that I can't keep track of my bets as they move around the table.

    Well if your a dont better the odds are in your favor therefore, more suckers at the table more chances to win.
    Random rollers are a darkside betters best friend

    i personally like to play in tables that are not too crowded.... But i also like tables that are packed ONLY IF THEY HAVE GOOD ACTION.

    WHen they are slow, you can take your time, talk to your delears, get good advice and just have more time to focus with less distractions...

    the reason i like big tables is because... IF you are doing great, winning money for your self and making others money, they love you, cheer for you and some players will even tip you and throw money yourway. If they bet a hardway Hop bet and win 30-1
    they will most likely pay you a few bucks. remember, the better you roll, the more money they make

    so i have to say its 50 - 50 for me

    Personally, I prefer a table where you don't have to squeeze in and be "scrunched up" against somebody else, but certainly not an empty table. It's nice to have at least five people shooting, so the dice don't come around too often. I also like to watch the dealers make their payoffs, especially very skilled ones, so it's nice to have some place and prop bettors at the table, although I generally stick to the pass line myself.
    Cheers,

    Personally I prefer playing in a crowded table . In a way it slows the game down a bit till all the bets are placed, or payed. It somehow raises the temperature of the table, more laughter, more time to think of what your next move will be. That's just my preference. In a crowd of 16 there are sure to be at least one to two semi hot shooters. Asking dealers for advice should only be done in a non crowded table. keeping in mind, dealers are only giving you advice on the standard rule of play, they do not go into betting systems, or their own preference of play.

    For don't bettors, a few players at a quiet table represents a strong temptation. More than half-dozen or so players, among other signs, indicates that the action is most likely tending positive. More than a few times, dealers have commented on the tide turning when the table started filling up. Now whether that's cause or effect is another question.

    I would rather have a lonely table. That way it gets to our turn to roll the dice quicker.

    All you have to do is read the post by arrgy. His post tells you that you don’t want to be playing on a crowed table, now that’s if you are a shooter and can make points you would never want to be on a crowed table. The table slows down the shooter never gets the dice back, and you see every stupid thing that can happen on a table. Most of the times when you have a full table it’s because the players don’t know what they are doing or they would not be there to begin with.

    All tables start out with one player buying in, and then everyone that walks by and doesn’t know a thing about craps will buy-in. Sure you will find tables that have knowledgeable players already playing on if you are just walking through the casino and come to the table games part of the casino, but you have to know what to look for with these players.

    The first thing you want to look for are the shooters making points, do they have chips in there rack, you will find most good shooter standing buy the stick person, and if you can' shoot you should not be shooting there. Move to Stick Right or left two or three!

    95% of all craps players will never even read a book on the game and the first thing they do is run to the end of the table and buy-in. Why you ask, because they saw someone winning money in the movies doing so. These are the players that will stop any good roll from lasting, they stop the game with stupid bets and stacking chips right where the shooter is landing their dice. They scream out every time someone makes points calling in everybody else that don’t know a thing about the game. The worst thing you can do on a craps table is make noise, because the table will fill-up and the game will stop!

    I once saw a table that was right in front of the table I was shooting on start out with three woman on it fill up to the point that there was no room on it. They were having a great time of it screaming their heads off with every throw of the dice, to bad most of them were 7 outs.

    After I was done on the table I was shooting at I walked over to see what was happening with all the noise, everybody on the table was losing, and there wasn’t even one don’t player on the table. A don’t player would have made money on that table. I don’t know what the rest of the players were thinking by staying on the table, but they just stayed and lost their money, it was all most funny to see!

    You should never play craps unless you have read up on the game, and have some idea of what you are doing!
    Here is an interesting blog I found on craps: http://crapsadvantageplayers.blogspot.com/ they are saying the casinos are using bad dice.

    You need to do all the research you can before you ever set foot in a casino. Then never buy any system that tells you, you can win millions.

    Play on tables that have one or two player on them, leave if you start to lose, don’t put too much money on the table at one time and you might stand a chance of winning, when you do have a profit walk out the door!

    I walked up to a crowded table last nite with my last $15 wanted to roll had 7 or 8 shooters in front of me the guy rolling and the two before him were doing good I placed the 9 hit a couple before he was out the next guy went out rite away and I lost my profits so decided to wait for my roll. Well had I went ahead and played the rest of the guys instead of myself either the point with min. odds or the 6 and 8 or really just about any other number I would have been up 1 or 2 hundred maybe more as it was I waited 20 or 30 min just to 7 out and go home broke I may never roll again.

    passthedice that link you posted was very interesting about the biased diced they claim to use in Vegas and possibly any other state except Colorado. The skeptic in me has some questions about how the casinos do it. Assuming they are using biased dice, they present the shooter with 5 dice to choose from. How can they increase their odds of a seven? What if the shooter picks two dice that are weighted on the same side, say the 3 for example. Then the shooter is more likely to roll a hard eight.
    Also, if the casinos can swing the edge even higher in their favor. Why not play the dark side?
